By Matthew ELOYI

The Federal High Court, Abuja, has fixed December 13 to rule on the no-case-submission filed by Shamsudeen Mohammed, son of Bauchi State Governor and former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Bala Mohammed.

According to reports, Mr. Mohammed is facing a 15-count charge preferred against him by the EFCC on allegations of conspiracy, money laundering and forgery.

At the resumed hearing on Monday, counsel adopted their written addresses as their final arguments in the case.

Counsel to Mohammed, Chris Uche, prayed the court to uphold the no-case-submission on the ground that the prosecution had failed to establish a prima facie case against his client.
